since i will recieve my MOD in the next days, it's time you get to know me...
i'm Dominik, saxophone player out of germany. Been playing for ~20 years, seriously for 4 years now (i'm not a professional but i play a lot in several bands and i earn some money with it. not enough to live from, but hey - i can afford a MOD )
Well, the sax is my main instrument - i also sing and play the piano a bit, i also produce but mainly for my own use.
For effects on my saxophone i have been using an old digitech vocal 300 (yes, vocal effect pedals are the go-to solution for horn players) and it did it's job quite well. I found myself in a position where i had to decide to buy several seperate pedals (without harmonizer!) that would have had cost around 600$ or just preorder the MOD. No-brainer.
Also i will be able to expand my live playing style, using a small midi keyboard and adding vocal effects to my microphone. All-in-one... awesome.
Well, i guess you heard that part quite a lot...
I will try to use the MOD also for the harmonizers, with my old effect pedal i only hat the equivalent to the "capo". I certainly hope the cpu won't burn down. But i'm confident, i can work with what i get, still hoping there will be an upgrade-possibility (i.e. from the A20 to the A23) in the future.
As most users here are (naturally) are String Players, i will try to take my time to upload some pedalboards for horn players, as well contribute in everything that might be interesting for horn players. My first thing to-do for example is to solder some cables and adapters since i have to use a phantom power adaper for my sax clip-on mic, which has an balanced xlr output. That i will have to match to the unbalanced TS input.
Also i started fiddling around with Arduino some weeks ago. Looking forward to the Arduino Shield or the documentation to build one myself.
k, i think i will leave you to it. Sorry for droning on.
My first weekend with the MOD will be awesome!
